Re: mason vs. sklansky

Hi Greg:

The actual answer to this is that Mat Sklansky now runs the company. So both David and I have to be nice to him.

Re: Variance in different forms of poker

Hi Aaron:

Your variance at no limit almost always has to be higher due to the fact that you win or lose a very large pot every now and then. However, if you're an excellent player, this is more...
